I need a wiring diagram to hook up a new radio.


First you will need to get a wire harness for your specific make, model & year of car. This will interface the car wiring plug to your new clarion headunit.

Next you will connect the wires from your purchased wire harness to the wires of your Clarion Headunit. Using **** connectors with a wire crimper is the best way to do so.

Here is a wire color coding guide for the wires on your Clarion headunit:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

Looking for instruction to operate an Alpine MDA-W905JB head unit in a Japanese car I just bought.


Go to the store and buy a mounting kit and wiring harness adapter that are for your car. There are alot to choose from and most are universal and come with instructions. You can get these at wal-mart or best buy. The mounting kit is meant to fill in the empty space left by the new aftermarket radio (your alpine). The alpine will have a metal sleeve around it. take this off and put it in the mounting bracket so it is flush. The sleeve will have little triangle shaped tabs on it. Bend these out so the sleeve cant fall out of the bracket or someone will be able to pull out your radio. Remove your stock radio by pulling off the trim around the radio. This is held on by clips, so be careful. There will be a couple of screws holding in the radio. Remove these and pull the radio out. Behind the radio there will be 1 or 2 wiring harnesses plugged into the radio. Unplug these. Then attach the wiring harness adapters you bought. These plug into the stock harness and have wires at the other end that are labeled. Wire the alpine wiring harness into the harness adapters that you plugged into the stock harness. If you want to you can unplug the harness from the alpine and wire it to the harness adapter before plugging it into the stock harness. The wiring diagram should be on the radio. If not the colors are pretty common.
RED = SWITCHED PWR LEAD (IGNITION)
ORANGE = ILLUMINATION
BLACK = GND
YELLOW = BATTERY LEAD
GREY = FNT SPKR RIGHT(+)
GREY/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR RIGHT(-)
WHITE = FNT SPKR LEFT (+)
WHITE/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR LEFT (-)
VIOLET = REAR SPKR RIGHT (+)
VIOLET/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR RIGHT (-)
GREEN = REAR SPKR LEFT (+)
GREEN/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR LEFT (-)
BLUE = PWR ANTENNA LEAD
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE = REMOTE TURN ON LEAD(FOR SUBWOOFER AMPLIFIER)
There may be RCA jack inputs in the back and these are for the subwoofer amp.
There will be a large black cable in the back and this is the antenna wire. Plug in the antenna wire from the back of the stock radio here. Yu may or may not need an adapter for this depending on the size difference between the wire and the hole it plugs into.
**Please note: if your car has a "premium" sound system that comes stock with an amplifier you will need to attach the power antenna lead from the alpine to the remote turn on lead on the harness adapter. If not when you turn on the radio/cd it will not turn on the stock amplifier and the speakers will not work.
I found this out with my 99 dodge avenger which has an Infinity stock radio. You can pop the trunk and look up at the back dash and see the small amplifier.
Once the radio is wired and the mounting bracket is installed, connect the harness adapter as well as the antenna wire. The new wiring harness adapter makes the wiring a little longer so you may have to stuff them back a little bit. Connect the harness from the alpine back into the back of the radio and slide the head unit into the metal sleeve until you hear a click. Before sucuring the mounting bracket and putting the trim back on it is a good idae to try the radio out so if there is something wrong you dont have to disassemble it again. When you buy the harness and bracket it will say on the packaging "nissan 84-94" or "Honda 83-99" or something similar. Look on the back for a complete list of compatable models.

Hope this was helpful. Please rate, and thanks!

I need to connect an Alpine Stereo to a 12v battery in a boat. I know that that is not recommended but we got it used. I am not sure which wires to connect to where. Could you please help me?


Connect the yellow wire directly to the battery (this is constant 12v power, to maintain memory settings). Red wire gets wired to the switched 12v system (so that the stereo turns on and off with the ignition). Blue wire (or blue/white) would be for an antenna or an amplifier (if not used, just seal it off with electrical tape). Orange wire isn't used (that's a dimmer wire for tapping into a car's dash light dimming). Black is ground. The rest of the colored pairs (gray, gray/black, green, green/black, white, white/black, purple, purple/black) are the speaker outputs. The wires with the black stripes are the negative wires in each pair. They usually say on them which color corresponds to which speaker location (front left, rear right, etc). If not, take a look on the Alpine unit - sometimes there's a decal or diagram on there, or a list, which will tell you which wires to connect to which speakers.
